    It is crucial for a free society to be able to document the abuse by “officials” when such things occur.

    But we are also seeing plenty of laws already on the books and others being drafted which go far to help protect the police and limit the abilities of everyday citizens in the public arena to document such abuses when they occur.

    Be fully aware of such laws in your own community and work to reverse them. In Illinois, for example, wiretapping laws are being used to prevent everyday citizens from recording via video police abuses in the public sphere.

    the proof is in the pudding. Lower Salford Township police have threatened to break down my disabled mom’s closed bedroom door (with her in bed!) cause my crazy GrandMa who physically/verbally/mentally abuses me calls the police for random things such as claiming I took her keys, or Mommy turned up the heat
    Please watch entire vid/GrandMa has made FIFTY FALSE 911 CALLS and has enlisted her crazy helpers (her only “friends” who she pays) work in tandem to abuse us. This is why I tweet and record: http://www.youtube.com/user/MyGrandMaHitsMe?feature=mhee#p/u/1/aJDzAM5ay5E
